“There’s never a dull moment with this band…” muses Mr Crud on the way to “De Pool”. He’s not kidding either …… After putting the previous nights fracas at the Bluetones gig in Bangor behind them, the boys arrive at the venue to be told that they’re on at 8.30pm instead of the agreed 10.00pm slot. The initial heated exchange between band & promoter is resolved with “9.40 is de best I can doo for ya, la”. Happy with this, they decamp to savour the sights of nearby Slater St.

The Breeding Ground website message board has been a-buzz with accusations, counter-accusations & general slanging after the previous live encounter. Hooper are scagheads & Pocket Venus are crap tradesmen. For the internet lurker its been an entertaining read & great publicity for the bands. (The bruises on Paul’s arms are inflicted through his surfing hobby rather than needles & I’ve seen Chris & Naldo’s work first hand; believe me, they’re not tradesmen! Sorry to shatter any illusions there).
